Fishing Costa Rica – Inshore or Off-Shore

Costa Rica is a fisherman’s dreamland. We book boats out of both the famous Los Suenos Resort and Marina ( LSRM ) and in the Pez Vela Marina in Quepos.  The Central Pacific zone of Costa Rica has some of the best Sport Fishing in the world and is known for Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Tuna, Wahoo, Roosterfish, and Snapper.  Billfishing offshore for Marlin and Sails is by far the most popular fishing done in our area and tends to be real good between December and May.  Searching for the other fighting fish is good all year round.  So, whether you choose to go fishing while onshore standing on the beach, while inshore in a panga or smaller vessel OR while offshore in a deep sea fishing vessel, we can help you arrange your half day or full day of fishing.  We can help you decide which boat is right for you.   To arrange your fishing charter,
